Story Hour
September through May, pre-school children attending with their caregivers enjoy fun, reading, entertainment, crafts, and more on a drop-in basis.  StoryHour is at 10:00am on Wednesdays, weather permitting. If it is below -20C story hour will be canceled and registrants will receive an email. This program is funded in part through grants provided by FCSS (Family and Community Support Services) and the Crossfield and District Recreation Board.

Growing Young Readers
This is a free, 8 week program, that usually runs twice a year for the caregivers of children aged 0-5 years to come with their children and have fun with songs, rhymes and stories that will help encourage literacy at an early age.  The program runs Tuesday mornings from 10:30am until 11:15am, and is expected to run again in the fall of 2018.

Lego Club

Runs on Tuesdays from 3:45 to 4:45 from September until the end of May for children aged 6 and up.  The program is free, registration is required, but Library membership is not.  Participation each Tuesday will be limited to the first 20 registered children to arrive.

Reading Tails
This is a program for 6 to 12-year olds who would like to practice their reading skills with a Central Alberta Humane Society-trained therapy dog and its handler. The program is designed to not only improve reading ability, but also increase a child’s confidence, communication and social skills!  Drop by the Library to register your child and book an appointment.
 
Ongoing Computer Tutorials
We have a program for pre-schoolers to help acquaint them with using a computer and start them learning some basic reading and math skills using education software.  We also have a program for adults, through both classes and one-on-one tutorials, to help them get more comfortable with sending and receiving emails, effectively using the Internet, and familiarizing themselves with word processing.  Please contact the Library at 403-946-4232 for more information.
